I had the house white wine, battered fish with baked potato and the brownie dessert. Excellent meal and the best baked potato I have had in recent memory. Service was flawless and we were in a rather large group of people. Love Main Street Cafe!

Average place with average food. Good menu choices and something for everyone. Reasonable prices. Ok wait staff. Good off street parking. It was good but not one of the places I will remember a year from now.
